We enjoy mixing it up in how we spend our evenings.
Sometimes it is silly stuff like making milk blue, but other times it is delicious stuff like making/coloring frosting for cupcakes!
True story is that we were playing Candy Land and I had drawn the cupcake (for the 324 time. I always get the @#$!ing cupcake). Ben saw it and declared that he wanted to make cupcakes. I thought: who wouldn't!? So we made cupcakes and frosting.
I walked in at one point and snapped this shot. I immediately walked out. They were clearly sneaking something and not telling me about it.
Here is Ben's lesson in frosting:
Mix it gently as to not make a mess.
Question the purpose of the whole cupcake part anyway. Next time I am fairly certain he will just ask to make cupcakes.
Which reminds me of a delightful book we have called If you give a cat a cupcake.
It is a great story and closely parallels what happens when you give a 2yr old a cupcake.
